Aura Healing With Crystals

December 30th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

Aura Healing With CrystalsThe energy field around a person’s body is the aura.  There are basically four layers to the aura, but they tend to blend into each other.  Our aura might need healing care, just like our physical body and chakras.  Below are Crystals recommended for healing listed in the book, Crystals for Everyday Living, by author Christina Rodenbeck.

Amethyst – draws in spiritual energy, heals holes, cleanses

Apache Tear Obsidian - protects

Bloodstone - cleans rapidly

Fluorite - strengthens aura’s membrane, creating a shield

Green Tourmaline – heals damaged aura

Jet – protects

Magnetite – strengthens

Quartz - cleanses, protects, energizes

Smoky Quartz – cleanses, grounds negative energies

Honor The Spirit Feather

December 14th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in ANIMAL SPIRIT GUIDES

Honor The Spirit Feathers

According to Ted Andrews author of,  Animal Speak The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great & Small,  any bird or feather that enters your life brings the message that it is there to help you use your intuitive faculties.  Finding feathers could mean that you are on a higher spiritual path.   The feather creates the opportunity to awaken your insights.

Honor The Spirit Feather

I love early morning walks and enjoy the chatter of the crows.  I am always finding beautiful iridescent black feathers on my path.   I had a wise woman teach me that these found feathers are gifts.  My gift is to hold the feather and consider the message it brings me.   Because collecting crow feathers in my State is illegal, I place the feathers near or on a tree or plant as a gift from the Crow.

Honor The Spirit FeatherWhen we see feathers in our midst it is considered a message that we need to lighten up, not take things too seriously, and try to find the joy in our situation.

There are times when a feather becomes a reassurance symbol by appearing to us when we are going through the different phases in our life. Letting us know that we are loved and watched over.

If a feather appears in a dream, the message is begin to move more freely in life.  When a white feather appears  in a dream, it represents a fresh start in a spiritual sense.

Daily Heart Chakra-Energy Massage

 Daily Heart Chakra Energy Massage

 I recommend the following Gentle Stimulation of the Heart Chakra-Energy Massage found in  A Handbook of Chakra Healing by Kalashatra Govinda:

Daily Heart Chakra Energy Massage

1.  Lie relaxed on your back with eyes closed.  Activate your hand chakras by rubbing your palms together in a circle.  Place the left hand palm down in the middle of the chest over the Heart Chakra and rest the right hand over the left hand.  Take several relaxed breaths.

2.  Deepen your breathing—especially the exhalation—for a short time.  Imagine with each inhale, you are taking energy in, and that with each exhalation energy is pouring into your Heart Chakra.

3.  Visualize radiant green energy in the shape of a ball or whirlpool filling your chest.  Continue for the duration of seven breaths.  Then rest your hands to your side.

4.  Remain quiet for a short time  so that you can feel the effects of this meditative practice.  The author suggests making time for this brief  massage at least once a day.Daily Heart Chakra Energy Massage

Tuesday's Healing Word Flexibility

Today my healing word is Flexibility which hopefully I have the ability to adapt and change amid the fluctuating circumstances of life.  I hope I can go  with the flow, seeing the choices, challenges, and opportunities in all that happens.

Tuesday's Healing Word Flexibility

 As a wife, mother, friend and associate, I will try more to be open to the opinions and feelings of others. My goal is to be more willing to change unproductive habits.   As a woman, I can seek imaginative new ways to do things.

Moldavite Space Stone Energy Net

December 5th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

Glassy Stones From Space

Moldavite is a very rare and precious stone.   Its scientific structure is unlike anything else. Moldavite is a natural “glass” formed from meteorite impact – it is classified as a tektite and exists only in a small area of the Czech Republic.  If you are lucky enough to have nine Moldavite pieces you can try the following crystal net:


Moldavite Space Stone Energy Net

1.  This energy net will expand awareness, help you connect to earth energy and into the wider universe.

2.  Helps relax tensions in the chest, eases feelings of constriction and confusion.

3.  Will also help clarify your goals and directions in life.

4.   Position the Moldavite stones as shown in the illustration above, with the ninth piece on the Brow Chakra.

5.  Moldavite can be a powerful and sometimes disorientating experience.  Make sure to spend no longer than ten minutes in this net and ground yourself when finished.

Moldavite Space Stone Energy NetMore on Moldavite:

 It is a powerful Chakra opener and activator.

Resonates with the Heart, 3rd Eye, and Crown Chakras.

Its energy tends to first move to wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies.

It will then settle and center in the heart.

Tuesday's Healing Word Touch

Touch is to perceive by the sense of feeling; to lay hands on; to affect; and/or to arouse an emotion.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,

a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,

an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,

all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

~Leo Buscaglia

Tuesday's Healing Word Touch

“There is a mysterious healing power in Touch

that is beyond words and

beyond our ideas about it.”

The Caring Tree

December 1st, 2014 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN | RETIRED FEATURE POSTS



I am The Caring Tree,

and I have survived the day.

If you climb my branches,

I am afraid I cannot stay.

If you touch me carefully,

you can feel my strength.

If you stand close to me,

you can sense my peace.

You see my body is fragile, 

tender, and very worn.

Each time you stand upon me,

a part of me is torn.

Come close my friend,

feel my strength and peace.

It is a gift I give you,

and it is what I hope to teach.

But please do not climb my branches,

as I wish to stay.

 I would like to remain here,

 for yet another day.
